Skill Building #2: Winding Sticks

05-20-2012 12:41 PM by lysdexic | 5 comments »

With a nod to Jim Tolpin and the New Traditional Woodworker I am going to attempt to complete all of his skill building projects. I would submit that my bench hooks would qualify as my first project in this theme. These winding stick are a hybrid of Tolpin’s project and the blog entry by Schwarz. The sticks are made from a curly walnut stick and the inlays are poplar. The pics are pretty much self explanatory. No hold fast holes yet but illustrates a benefit of the split top. ...

Building a Moving Fillister Plane #1: Precursor and laminating the body

06-12-2014 10:46 PM by Wally331 | 4 comments »

Intro- I’ve been using a lot of wooden planes recently and have really come to enjoy their lightness and the feel of wood sliding on wood. Obviously there are a ton of vintage woodies out there; however, I quite enjoy making my own versions of them. They are a lot cheaper (if you have some time on your hands) and you don’t have to deal with old warped wood and a host of other problems you may encounter. I can’t say I am an expert by any means, I’m simply sharing my...

Building My Roubo Bench #1: Why I Decided to Build This

01-17-2012 03:13 AM by Andy Panko | 4 comments »

So after reading Christopher Schwarz’s book Workbenches: From Design and Theory to Construction and Use, I decided it was time I built myself a “real” workbench. I’ve had various bench-like structures that I’ve used as assembly tables, clamping areas, clutter storage, etc. My current “bench” is basically a large custom cabinet base with a formica top and an integrated Kreg measuring fence built on it that I use for making cuts on my miter saw....

Not Just Any Box #1: Preparing the Way

01-16-2008 11:26 PM by YorkshireStewart | 14 comments »

I’d been living with this board of burr / burl or pippy oak in the workshop for five or six years and must have picked it up and put it back down at least a hundred times (approx!). I have done quite a few boxes in the past with lids something like this: but I always intended that this piece would be used in a different way, and for something a little bit special. Though I’ve made many boxes, I have never thought of doing one for me, so this challenge presents an opportunity. ...

Evolution of my router planer #1: First Version: 1.0

10-19-2010 06:02 PM by TZH | 9 comments »

One of the things I found out very early on in my type of woodworking is that the slabs I use in my projects are often in dire need of planing. The problem with this is the thickness planer I had was not large enough to accommodate the width of most of these slabs. So, I began reviewing my old book and magazine libraries and surfing the Net to try and find something else that might meet the need for the type of work I planned to do. The results of my search were mixed. The very first opti...

Evolution of my router planer #4: Version 1.2a

10-21-2010 06:01 PM by TZH | 4 comments »

Version 1.2a At this point I decided to get more “radical” in my design approach. I removed two of the cross rails (found out through experience that I didn’t need them anyway). Then I took the corner poles out of the flanges and put a “sleeve” on the side of my table for the corner poles to slide into (see photo below). Electrical conduit clamps work great for attaching the sleeves. This design also allowed me to adjust the height of the router sled in...

How to Make a Wooden Straight Edge for Woodworking

07-21-2014 02:20 PM by WoodAndShop | 5 comments »

In the above video I show a simple tutorial on how to make a wooden straight edge for traditional woodworking. A straight edge is an essential measuring tool used when flattening & straightening your boards, and a perfect beginner’s project to hone your traditional hand tool woodworking skills! WOODEN STRAIGHT EDGE vs. METAL STRAIGHT EDGE Why would traditional woodworkers want to use a wooden straight edge when they can purchase precision-ground metal straight edge...

In the Shop #4: Inspired to do something new... Hand-cut Dovetails

02-09-2011 05:09 AM by Hoakie | 28 comments »

Is it odd that every time I get a new power tool to perform a task, I get an urge to try and do it by hand as well? Anyway it seems to happen to me a lot. This year I received a dovetail jig for Christmas and was up and running cutting half-blind dovetails in no time. However, I have been wanting to learn techniques working with hand tools for a long time to expand my arsenal. Over the past few weeks I’ve been eying some of the entries to the Winter Challenge, the videos of the Ja...

Shop Stool #2 (and curve soled plane)

06-08-2014 11:42 AM by kaerlighedsbamsen | 6 comments »

This is a blog on creating this project. After making my Shop stool I have gotten a lot of interest and questions like “can you make me one as well?” and “is it possible to make it from a light wood?” Inspired from several people here that talk about making money on their woodwork I thought it would be usefull to make another stool experimenting with methods to potentially make it more production friendly. Other than that i set up 3 goals:- It should be made from...
